    That's what I was worried about when I was handing it over too, but the guy was really nice and said it doesn't make any difference

    I'm a bit confused tbh as to why they need so many documents!
    when you consider how insecure their online interview booking system is, I'm quite surprised!

    Guys, don't know if this has already been answered so sorry if it has, but what does the letter/email confirming your work experience have to say? I have my interview next week and I'm asking people to write something to confirm I've done what I say I've done but I want to give them an idea of what they actually need to write!

    Basically, ur work experiences have already reflected in ur PS. The letters from whoever u worked just need to confirm that u actually worked here. Make sure u r not bs in ur PS.

    It's on the document with the checklist grid for your personal documents that you need to print off and take to the interview

    It's honestly not as bad as I was expecting - just stay calm but confident. Listen to what the interviewer is saying because their questions will be meant to help you Good luck!
    Oh and make sure to arrive in plenty of time as some people turned up over half an hour late, which obviously didn't look good!

    Found this on their website- does this mean ranking after interview is based entirely on interview?! It does imply that, but just wanted someone else's opinion!

    I know it's probably really obvious, but interview did not go well, and I want some hope

    I'm afraid they do actually use interview as the only criteria (and UKCAT in few cases) . However, to cheer you up I thought that my interview went so badly I actually applied to other countries to do medicine and then got early offer

    Just waiting on notts now got interviews at Liverpool and leicester but nottingham is my first choice, so fingers crossed! Hope I'm in with a chance (got score of 44 :/) what are the standards like this year for ukcat? I got a score of 2640 but not sure if that's enough, any advice?

    Thanks for your reply!
    It's kind of you to be encouraging, however interview is by far my weakest point

    Do you know if they give out offers and rejections at the same time? I.e. most given out mid-April with some early ones, or do they send out rejections earlier? I'm ridiculously impatient

    It was interesting actually! Had my interview yesterday and they said they would give some responses in February and some in April... It kind of made me think that they may give some of the decisions out for this first group soon then people in the middle with the rest. It didn't really make sense because their applications procedure said that they would basically wait until the end and rank everyone then choose the top 400.

    I am fine waiting though, hopefully it will be good news though!!!

    Well last year they sent early offers end of March. Then on each Monday on April (and I think Tuesday too) they were sending offers. Rejections came last

    Hey!
    I'm a first year medical student at Notts and thought I'd drop a quick post on here.
    If you've got any questions about med schol/prep'ing for interviews feel free to ask


    Haven't posted on here in ages but I've seen some of you's coming in for interview and it reminded me of the days I'd spend here eagerly trying to find hints/tips/clues etc


    Good luck with applications!
